The Kaleidoscope Quilt was designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer to show the possibilities of mixing and matching our 22” diamonds to create an exploded star quilt layout. The project requires (24) diamond blocks. We chose the Basket Star and Woven star for this design. We are also introducing a paper pieced background block in this layout. The quilt requires paper piecing and traditional piecing skills, including curved piecing, to complete. Once you’ve finished this quilt, we recommend checking out Quiltster to see a variety of other diamond blocks that could be used to create this design. Likewise, if you would like to expand it, there is a border option that will take this pattern to 80” x 80” and one that will extend the design to 99” x 99”. Quiltster will give you yardage and an image of your expanded design. It also gives you border options, so there is more than one expansion option to increase the size of your quilt. This pattern is Quiltster Compatible!
